The wine-growing area is located in the south of Hungary in the Hungarian Plain (Alföld). Until 1997 it was called Hajós-Vaskút. The climate is characterized by extremely dry, hot summers. The vineyards on loess soil (in contrast to the sand of the Alföld) comprise about 2,100 hectares of vines. Mainly white wines are produced. The main grape varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cserszegi Füszeres, Chardonnay, Kadarka, Kékfrankos (Blaufränkisch), Rajnairizling (Rhine Riesling) and Zweigelt.
